What does it truly means to push your boundaries and live a full life?
"In this talk, record-setting open water swimmer Kimberley Chambers considers what it truly means to push your boundaries and how to live a full life.
Through her amazing feats of athleticism she has learned to use her fear to send her towards her goals and encourages the audience to utilize their own fears and further push themselves outside of their comfort zones. In 2007, after a freak accident, medical experts informed Kimberley Chambers that she had a 1% chance of walking unassisted again, but she knew she had to prove all the doctors and surgeons wrong.
Nominated for New Zealand's preeminent sports award, the Halberg Sportswoman of the Year in 2015, Kim has now completed open-water swims of extraordinary lengths, becoming the third woman, sixth person, and first New Zealander to ever finish the Oceans Seven, seven challenging and risky swims around the world.
For the past two consecutive years, Kimberley has been nominated for the World Open Water Swimming Association Woman of the Year Award. On August 8th 2015, Kimberley set a new world record becoming the 1st woman ever to swim from the Farallon Islands to the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, a 30-mile swim that took 17 hours." -- TEDx Catalina School
